Welcome to the Jungle

If you ever come to Omaha, Nebraska, this is by far the hot spot.

Henry Doorly Zoo has been rated number 1 in the world in 2015. 

I'm going to share a little section of the zoo each week. Keep in mind that this is just a little piece of the gigantic zoo. Kingdoms of the Night might be hard to share because it's all dark. Maybe a video will do when I get to that. 

Welcome to the Lied Jungle. It's my favorite spot. A lot of artists were hired to paint on the walls to make it look as natural as possible. It's America’s largest indoor rainforest. Monkeys, tapirs, macaws and pygmy hippos are just a few of the animals you will see in the Lied Jungle. This exhibit showcases rainforests from South America, Asia and Africa. There's an upper and lower walk view of the rainforests.

This shows more of an overall view of the Jungle:

I love to watch the monkeys. 

They have a few draw bridges. My boys wouldn't hold still. This is the best photo I could get of them.

Tapirs are so neat to look at.

Fascinating birds:

I'm not sure what this is:

An Otter:

A meeting of some sort:

A colorful bird:

What's your favorite animal in the jungle?

The monkeys, actually the gorillas, are always my favorite. It's nice to see other zoos from around the country. We have the world's crappiest in my town. It only takes about 20 or 30 minutes to walk through!

My second oldest just took my youngest to the zoo in Miami. They fed the giraffes and thought that was cool. :) I've been to your zoo and loved it.

Those pygmy hippos - I think we call them tapir over here. We have lots of them!
The Henry Doorly Zoo looks awesome!

The last zoo I was at was the Bronx Zoo in New York. They Monkey house was closed, but we did get to see gorillas.
